bad day

On WritingBad days suck.

I’m not talking about when something truly tragic happens. Of course those days suck. I’m talking about days when you just feel off. Days when you misfire consistently. Days when you can barely put words into sentences, when little, stupid things annoy you to your core, or when people whose company you normally enjoy drive you bat-shit crazy.

Days like that have reverberating effect. Anything you do can be tainted by the general negative vibe, and that’s not good for much of anything. It can kill your writing, but it can wreak havoc on your personal life, too.

Fortunately, there are things you can do to combat a bad day. All too often, the source of the sourness is a little thing. If you can pin-point it, or at least find something to get you into a better frame of mind, it really is possible to turn a bad day into a good one.

Last week I came across this nifty little article, linked below. Give it a read. Better yet, bookmark that bad boy for future reference when you’re having a not-so-hot day. Don’t just mope your way through it. Do something to make it better.
